About this deal

Towards the end of development, Tanabe had to take a week off due to lower back pain and Tabata filled in for him. This is a new feature for the Donkey Kong games but doesn’t change the feel of the game at all and the game still holds true to the greatness that it has always been! Pelt opponents with Diddy’s Peanut Popgun and hover using his Barrel Jet, or slam bad guys into submission with Donkey Kong’s Ground Pound. It promoted the game with a series of trailers, which journalists said showcased a hardcore difficulty. A sequel, Donkey Kong Country: Tropical Freeze, was released for the Wii U in February 2014 and ported for the Nintendo Switch in May 2018.

Retro was directed to develop Metroid Prime 3: Corruption (2007) instead, [10] [11] Tanabe noting that Nintendo depended on Retro to make games that could not be developed in Japan. Stanley the Bugman, it's your job to use your bug spray to deflect the advances of flower fan Donkey Kong through your greenhouse. Because Rare was uninvolved, Wise, Donkey Kong Country 's original composer, was unable to contribute.Donkey King himself holds a special place in my heart, so I personally like playing DKC 1 a little more than the sequel.

It's hard to argue that the base gameplay here hasn't aged, though, and you'll probably need a healthy dose of nostalgia and/or academic interest in the game to get much enjoyment from it nowadays. They introduced surface-clinging to expand gameplay to walls and ceilings, [19] and chose not to include underwater levels because they did not fit the pace. Donkey Kong punches the Tiki and sends it out the front door, Donkey Kong then jumps down from his tree house and starts his new adventure.Mario also became the antagonist in Junior rather than retain his role as the protagonist from the first game. The game debuted third on the Japanese video game charts, with 163,310 units sold, [121] and has sold 638,305 copies in Japan as of January 2011. The team noted that while audiences often perceive side-scrolling games as simple and archaic, they are actually quite difficult to develop due to the amount of care that goes into each level.
